This thirty-seventh Kieve Annual is affectionately dedicated
to the increasingly large number of second generation boys
Since 1926 a great deal has happened to change the shape
and attitudes of the world in which we live, but Kieve has
managed to preserve its original ideals tenaciously.
Thanks to the efforts and enthusiasm of untold hundreds
of people, Kieve has successfully weathered infancy and ado-
lescence, and we predict a rich maturity.
We trust that the Kieve boy of the future will follow in the
path of those who have gone from Kieve before him.

"Grant we beseech thee, Almighty God, that the words we have heard with our
outward ears, may through Thy grace, be so grafted inwardly in our hearts, that they
may bring forth in us the fruit of good living; endue us with strength, generosity,
inquisitiveness, tolerance, and love; to the honor and praise of Thy Holy Name,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN."
The Sunday morning chapel service includes the Order for Daily morning
prayer from the Book of Common Prayer and a sermon. The sermons this
summer have tried to emphasize the importance of Christian living and of tak-
ing into our daily lives that which we hear and say on Sunday. Christianity
is NOT a Sunday religion; it is not something which we all do on Sunday be-
cause it is nice. Christianity is essential to our everyday living.
The first five sermons were on what was called the traits of a leader; and we
defined this person as one who is doing his part to the best of his abihty whether
it be as captain, president or a follower. We saw that these traits were: (1)
generosity or giving of oneself to others and God; (2) inquisitiveness or an
active interest in those around us and in the things going on around us; (3)
strength — physical, courage, faith and knowledge; (4) tolerance — "Judge not
lest yt be judged." — and we saw that if we look for good we shall find it; while,
if we look for the bad we shall rather find that; and (5) Sincerity and Love.
The summary of the law might well summarize all of these — "thou shalt love
the Lord Thy God with all thy heart, with all thy strength, with all thy mind
and with all thy soul; and thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." We then
took a quick look at prayer where we saw the kinds of prayer, how to pray,
and how prayer is essential to Christian living. The next to last Sunday Mr.
Hudson, a guest speaker, spoke to us of the importance of developing the
potential which God has given us and how adversity helps us to grow. Finally,
water sports weekend we discussed the essence of the Christian family. In all
of these we continually saw the importance of putting into daily practice the
things which God commanded us to do in our daily lives. — John H. Smith.
The Basic Theme or method of treatment that we have tried to establish
this year has been one of ''preventive medicine" so to speak. We impressed
upon the campers the importance of reporting to the infirmary with the sUghtest
physical complaint in order that an evaluation could be made immediately —
thereby aborting any complications that could have happened had they not been
checked in the very beginning.
We have also used some of the new sprays now on the market and find them
effective. These have eliminated infections from insect bites, sunburn, cuts,
etc. These new methods of emergency treatment are all in keeping with main-
taining the excellent record of the Camp Kieve Infirmary down thru the years,
i.e., — fully equipped and with the best ^nd newest methods.
Aside from Httle sicknesses that occur from day to day the infirmary is also
a place where the camper feels free to come and say, "We're planning a dance
for Friday night, would you mind pressing my shirt for me?" Other favors
asked of the nurse are: mending bathing suits, ripped pants, sewing on arrows
and different award insignias. We have been asked for: shoestrings, safety
pins, long underwear, washing powder, string, scissors to cut toenails, and last
but not least to "nurse" the Uttle fawn Kieve IX.
The infirmary also set a precedent at Kieve this year by welcoming the first
nurse's husband to the family. Since the infirmary is on a 24 hour daily cover-
age the long hours were made more tolerable.
We have had no epidemics, no contagion and no illnesses of any consequence
this year. — Kay Stokes.
Tutoring is a necessary evil that will be with us, with increasing intensity
probably, for a long time to come. Blame it on the competition for world
supremacy with the Communists if you want to; but by all means praise the
boys who have found time this summer in an already jam-packed schedule to
"hit the books."
It is the belief at Kieve that nothing, including tutoring, should stand in
the way of the unique value of the regular camping program. Therefore those
boys who had lessons to prepare and tutorial sessions to meet had to do so in
"free time." This meant that they had to have a little more self-discipline
than the other boys, and that they had to manage their time particularly wisely.
Our hats are off to the following boys who rolled up a fine record of achieve-
ment in the following subjects with their tutors.
Math and English
John van Roden
Kieve offers an intensive and varied program of activities
which are enthusiastically received by the campers. Some
new sports such as touch football, soccer, and volleyball sup-
plemented an already full program that all enjoyed. Instruc-
tion and competition were always available to all.
The archery range provided a great deal of activity and enjoyment for the
campers this summer. The range was usually crowded during activity period,
and a few of the more experienced and devoted archers made the trek down
to the targets in free time to practice for their awards.
Every boy in camp shot for his awards, and a large majority of the campers
gained at least one of the felt arrows worn so proudly on their shirts. Prac-
tically everyone received his white arrow, and quite a few young men won three
or more qualifications. The outstanding archer in the Bunker Hills was Tom
Reynolds, but Special Mention should also go to John Clark, Mac Keyser,
and Nicky LeFevre. In the Glenayrs, Willy Stettinius gained five qualifications
in his first year, and Rob Femald made a bold bid to capture Kieve Archer
honors. The Harris boys produced some surprises. Rick Koester, Hughes
Pack, and Andy Sutton became fine Robin Hoods. Below one will find listed
the highest qualification won by each boy in 1962.
As IN recent years, interest in baseball was slow during the first half of the
year, but picked up considerably with the prospect of outside games as a lure.
To practice for the Chimney Point tilts, there was a series of Orange-Black
games. However, the Oranges followed suit of their Councillor softball counter-
parts by immediately dominating the play. FirebaUing pitcher John van Roden,
converted (almost) trackman Tom Supplee, Robby Richardson, Jeff Slack,
Ewing Walker, Dave Lott, Stephen Michael, Tom McKoy, and Pete Gamage
starred for the winners; pitcher Paul Newhn, Robby Femald, Jon Piper,
Hughes Pack, Ned Hetherington, John Perkins, and Freddy Levering were
their worthy opponents. Bunker Hillers Billy Baer, Ned McKoy, and Billy White
(who improved immensely in one year) added more spark to the fire.
The Chimney Point game was extremely frustrating. CP got off to a quick
5-0 lead before Paul Newlin's middle inning relief pitching stemmed the tide.
Kieve batters were hitting the ball solidly, but right back at somebody. Chief
victims of CP's stellar defense were Levering, Richardson, and Fernald. How-
ever, Hetherington, Slack, and T. McKoy drilled hits through the defense to
cut the score to 5-3. However, Kieve lapses allowed the opposition to pull away
to a 10-3 victory.
The 13-year-old game saw Kieve build up a 4-2 lead after 4Vi innings on
the hitting of Slack, Hetherington, and, especially, Levering and the one-hit
pitching of van Roden, who was overpowering. At this point, the Kieve gen-
tlemen handed over a 6-4 victory to Chimney Point.
Baseball played an enjoyable part in a fine summer. — Dick Koelle.
Boxing and Wrestling
The boxing and wrestling matches were started on the first Friday of camp.
The campers responded with gusto, with full cards each evening. Matches were
alternated so that the power and strength of those who duplicated activities
did not waste away. Two matches of the season were of special interest. The
first was a match between the Underweight Champion of Kieve and the Over-
weight Champion of the World of Councillors. Geoft' Nuckols through sheer
determination, pinned his opponent in the third period. Some say the big
fellow was a bit winded, but he said that it was the lack of food intake that
evening that brought his downfall. A real downfall it was. The other match
of importance was a tag team aft'air between the team of Dunn and Willy J.
versus the team of Freddy Moller, Swamp Fox, and Nuckols. The campers
again proved their ability by pinning the council in the third round.
The helpful instruction of Dune Cocroft paid dividends for Ned McCoy,
Ricky Crecraft, Freddy Moller, Tom Supplee, Stu Harper, Steven Michael,
Kim Moller, Will Stettinius and Billy Baer.
Though the matches were all fought fiercely, a safety record of splendid
proportion was recorded. Good sportsmanship and the sheer pleasure of hav-
ing a good time prevailed. — Grant Dunn.
Music and Drama
Music is an important factor in the growing up of any boy. and Kieve gives
a wonderful opportunity for this. Every Sunday the choir's loud voices give
support to the congregation on the hymns. Each boy is encouraged to join
the choir if he has a decent voice, or a frog voice, and the desire to sing.
The traditional Saturday night skits were lost this year, but trip skits pro-
vided lots of fun. Aside from these, the councillors put on one show which
was a take-off on a rock 'n* roll show — this proved to be quite amusing.
A week and a half before the close of camp, the rehearsals for the water-
sports play were begun. This year we put on a musical comedy called Parents
Think the Darndest Things. The lead parts in this show were carried by Ned
Hetherington. John van Roden. and Jeff' Slack; who played a mother, father,
and son respectively. A sell-out first night audience attested to the polish of
the performance by the cast of 30.
I owe a great debt to Nancy Kennedy, for without her this branch of camp
life would not survive. She not only played the organ for the chapel services,
but she wrote the music and the entire play for the watersports production.
I must also thank the entire cast for their co-operation, for it made the direc-
tion of the play an easy task. — Ted Whitney.
In its second year as an activity at Kieve, radio has become a popular and
worth-while activity. Thirty percent of the camp built kits, and others wished
they could, but it was too late to order more. The kits this year were of a
more difficult nature than last year. This is due to the fact that more selection is
ottered with these advanced kits.
The most popular kits were the broadcasters, which enabled a boy to talk
into another nearby radio. These interested the boys because they were able
to disturb a councillor, a brother, or sister while they were listening to the radio.
Another popular kit was the intercom. This kit enabled a boy to talk to a
cabin mate, after the lights were out, behind the councillor's back. They also
make very useful items in a house, it saves much of the yelling which usually
goes on up and down the stairs.
Radio not only ofi'ers a boy a valuable experience in the field of electronics,
but it gives a boy a useful kit which he will value for the rest of his life.
I hope that in the years to come the increasing enthusiasm of the radio pro-
gram continues. — Ted Whitney.
Work in the shop this year, as in others, underwent a series of fads which
disappeared as fast as they occurred. A wild splurge in the beginning ex-
hausted the supply of models. After this gymp became the thing. Lanyards
and just plain stitch pieces became noticeable all over camp. Soon some
turned to making homemade, wooden pipes. Pine needle tobacco proved popu-
lar until after the first attempt. Wood carvings, boats, wood collections, and
various woodwork occupied the boys for the remainder of the season. The
shop was productive the entire summer, and some new craftsmen were revealed.
— Jim Quinn.
The landsports of football, soc-
cer, and track got a big boost this
year when the old archery range was
bulldozed and converted into an
With the support and enthusiasm
of many councillors, razzle-dazzle
football became very popular. The
high-scoring games (the score of
one game was 114-36) saw plenty
of action. The participation of the
North Harris boys (long pass won-
der Tom Supplee. John van Roden.
Noel Tales. Frank Van Dusen. Dave
Lott. and the rest), sparked the

Crecraft. Brown. Tales, and Ches
Yellott were also outstanding.
Volleyball w as quite popular dur-
ing the summer, but even Morrie
Heckscher and Dave Scull could not
withstand the appeal of football.
Many games were held, and many
became quite proficient.
All in all. Kieve had a very ac-
tive year on the new field. — ^Dick
Track was introduced this year for the first time. With our new field, and
new equipment several worthwhile track meets were held. Ricl^y Crecraft
and Tom Supplee dominated most events, but Robbie Richardson, John Per-
kins, Rich and Ches Yellott, and Noel Fales were close behind. The jumping
pit drew the most interest, as many tasted sawdust for the first time as they
learned to be John Thomases, Valeri Brumels, and Ralph Bostons. This self
sacrificing sport of track offers each boy a challenge, whether it be jumping
high or long, throwing weights, running long or short distances, or participating
in a relay. Physical fitness respects track as its greatest sport, and those who
participate gain physical, moral, and spiritual fibre. — Jack Kistler.
The Damariscotta Lake was low this year on the campers' arrival, which
resulted in very little bass fishing. A few were landed by plugging, and even
more by trolling. The pickerel fishing was excellent as many fought the weeds
and pulled many a lunker from the lake. The real fishing took place on the
many trips. Pickerel fishing which is unsurpassable was experienced on the
Machias trips. One party caught 88 fish in a day and a half. Northern pike
were taken on the Penobscot, as were white perch and pickerel on the Dead
River. The ocean fishermen caught pollock and a few short mackerel. All in
all the fishing was good to excellent, and Best Fisherman goes to Denny Emory,
who only this year began fishing. — Jack Kistler.
Once again, riflery proved to be one of the most popular activities in camp.
The first few days were spent in stressing the importance of safety, and in
teaching the correct positions. Once this was mastered the use of the sights
came easily for everyone. With these basic steps out of the way, but by no
means forgotten, the well known cry of "lock and load" was heard again.
Almost every boy in camp earned a "K." This year we had a large number
of new boys who not only gained their pro-marksman, but higher qualifications
as well. Among these riflemen were Dune Ely, Harry Cabot, Watt Reynolds,
Bucky King, Hughes Pack and Ned McKoy. Some of the other boys who
proved to be skillful were Tom Supplee, Ned Hetherington, Paul Newlin, Rob
Fernald, Jack Machen, Larry Doe, and Terry Rhoads. All this adds up to
another bang up year at the rifle range.
Below, one can find the list of highest qualifications that a boy received this
year. — John Heyl.
Marksman 1st Class Sharpshooter
Under the careful eye of supervisor. Morrison H. Heckscher. the council, labor-
ins furiously through a week of blood, sweat, and tears, transformed a quaner
acre of weeds into \\'imbleton"s Maine branch, just in time for the arrival and
secret training of next year's Davis Cup team.
The main support for this year's tennis camp came from South Glenayr and
the Bunker Hills, the former providing Rob Richardson. Reed Shingle. Jeff Slack.
Rob Femald. and Doug Reddy. while the latter furnished a large group of
eager novices including Dune Ely. Graham Yearley. Phil Franke. Steve Nick-
less. Mike Miller. Mac Keyser. Fred MoUer. and Tom Iglehan.
From Nonh Harris came regulars Dave Lott. Frank \'an Dusen. .Ajidy Sut-
ton. Hughes Pack. Beaney LeFevre. and John van Roden. while Jay Brown
and Geoff Nuckols held the hne for Nonh Glenayr.
When in camp. South Harris provided the interest of Joe D" Antonio. Rick
Koester. and Rich Yellott. and the steady skill of Hugh Xevin and Henr\ Fen-
Before his much lamented departure in early August, tennis pro Morrie
Heckscher contributed many hours of love's labor to the creation of a third
court. The results, a highly serviceable court, speaks for itself.
The ke\-note of the Heckscher "Period" was instruction, which kept all the
available manpower and coun space filled beyond capacity most activity periods,
while free time usually found the courts serving interested netmen. especially in
the evenings, when John Smith would take on South Glenayr Challengers.
For about a week. Kieve tennis hung in limbo, until the arrival of maestro
Bob Bishop and the institution of the annual tournament, which embroiled all
the campers in vigorous defense of their egos, and incidentally in some excel-
lent tennis play. — Dave Scull.
The results follow:
Bunker Hill Tournament: Winner. Jack Machen: Runner-up. N'ed McKov.
Glenayr Tournament: Winner. Ricky Crecraft: Runner-up. Rob Richardson.
Harris Tournament: Winner. Fred Levering: Runner-up. Rickv Crecraft.
This year our sailing fleet at Kieve was increased from six boats to nine. The
three new additions are Sunrays, a sixteen foot sloop with a 23' 6" mast. With
these new boats we are now able to handle twelve more boys each period.
Our sailing program is geared to teach the boys the fundamentals of sailing.
In learning these principles a boy can become a crewman or a skipper. The
highest of these ranks is skipper. If a boy attains this rank he knows the lan-
guage of sailing and can sail a simple rigged boat by himself. Those campers
who are not quite ready to skipper hold the rank of crewman. To aid these
sailors both Downy and I tried to have the boys race almost every period. It has
been proven in past years that if a boy can skipper a boat while racing he is
probably going to learn the principles of sailing much faster.
Before ending, special mention should go to Denny Emory, Ches Yellott,
Mac Keyser. Aub Huston, Mike Miller, Phil Franke, Chris Ross, Peter Wal-
lace and Kim Moller for attaining the rank of skipper. — Jim Gregory.
A NUMBER of varied activities were pursued in nature this summer. A couple
of "up-side-do\vTi"" hikes were taken and uncovered such specimens as sala-
manders, frogs, various crickets and water bugs and several species of ants.
The Nature room might better have been called the Kieve Zoo or the Kieve
Biology Laboratory, for there were several cages with such things as chipmunks,
garter and green snakes, frogs, a snapping turtle, salamanders and birds. We
also had. for a very short time, a large raccoon chained inside the "deer pen"
but he managed to break loose shortly after being captured.
Also in nature were performed dissections on frogs, a garter snake, a chip-
munk and a woodchuck. In these dissections we noted the various organs and
systems and commented on God's wondrous creation as seen in the intricate
make-up of these animals.
There were also several projects such as John Perkins' woodcuts of various
trees, and Larry Doe and Peter Wallace's plaster molds of the various tree
leaves found around camp.
Working with this small part of God's wonderful creation was fun and bene-
ficial for all those who participated. — John Smith.
Waterfront and Life Saving
The pulse of activity at the Kieve waterfront was greatly slowed this summer
by the temperamental and fickle weather we experienced. Even with this handi-
cap many of the campers attacked the water of Lake Damariscotta in quest
of Red Cross swimming instruction.
In these classes speed and competitive swimming are not emphasized. Rather,
attention is directed at the swimmer's form, the co-ordination of his arms and
legs into a smooth, rhythmic stroke. Thus the favorite swimming hole stroke
or the country club special may seem an adequate type of stroke, although
instructors would consider these an eyesore. Beginner, Intermediate and Swim-
mer are the classes held.
The pinnacle of the waterfront season occurred late in July when Freddy
Moller, Nicky LeFevre. and Tom Reynolds swam to their island. This gallant
accomplishment gave us a one hundred percent record for this 600 yard swim.
Kieve being a much older camp this year provided the instructor with about
twenty boys who finished up their junior life saving courses. Classes were held
morning and afternoon. The boys learned well their lessons. — Hill Ferguson.
The following attended the class:
Behlmer Lott Stettinius
Gamage McKoy, T. Supplee
Hetherington Michael Van Dusen
Huston Newlin Walker
King Nuckols Wallace
LeFevre, E. Pack Yellott, C.
Levering Reynolds, W.
1962 SAW MANY new trips added to an already overflowing
trip schedule. The West Branch of the Penobscot River
trip, the Dead River excursion, new sites at the White Moun-
tains, and various Pemaquid River trips complemented the
older lake, Machias, and Katahdin trips. The oldest camp-
ers experienced the wilds of Canada, a trip that shall never
be forgotten. The weather sometimes played tricks with the
boys, but a real love of the woods, the appreciation of the
forest creatures, and the pure joy of tramping in almost virgin
territory allowed each to mature in a way that many will

Monday, July 2 — Owing to the ulti-
mate in organization by Messrs. Willie
-J"' Stokes and Morrie Heckscher, five
members of South Harris and two of
North Harris were fed and on the
road heading for Katahdin in Dick's
VW bus, all by 7 A. M. The trip
north was highly uneventful except for
a new game known as ' "gas-station
guessing," whereby we stopped our
speedy chariot at ever\' gas station on
Rte. zrl, vainly tr>ang to find the one
with our bread. All was in vain, how-
ever, and we bought some on our own.
We arrived at Roaring Brook Camp-
site by 12:30 P. M.. after many tempt-
ing views of the mountain on this
beautiful day. We made a quick lunch
and headed up the 3.3 mile trail to
Chimney Pond, our base camp in the
The packs, containing enough food
for an army for two weeks, were heavy,
to say the least, but — with a little con-
sultation from Bonaparte Nevin — the
marching formation started off with
Master Sergeant Willie "J" setting a
grueling pace. Even as their excellent
packs fell to pieces John Rideout and
Kim Moller made no complaints. In
fact, all members of this select group
gave all they had, knowing full well
that the alternative was starvation.
The only vast miscalculation was Mor-
rie"s naive belief that all would be
pleasantly slow with Willie 'T" in the
lead. Remember, boys, when ele-
phants charge they move fast!
Once at our campsite we invaded
two good lean-tos. built a roaring fire,
and had a magnificent repast, a les
councillors. In the shadow of Baxter
Peak, the most impressive sight in all
New England, all hit the hay.
Tuesday, July 3 — Up by six, we
breakfasted, packed a Yearley-special
lunch, and took off for a day of climb-
ing. In perfect weather we climbed
the steep Cathedral Trail, John Per-
kins carr>ing the lunch pack which was
only shghtly bigger than himself. Wil-
he "J," with infinite subtlety, made it
clear, before the peak was reached,
that it was lunch time (11:30). Dried
fruits, cheese, and p & j sandwiches
tasted good. Eventually all made it to
the top of the mountain for a superb
view. With the "vicious"' Knife Edge
Trail to go Hugh Nevin stepped up
his fear campaign against one unsus-
pecting councillor. Dennis Emory, to
avoid being blown away like a leaf,
was securely lashed to the lead man
for additional stability. Descending
Dudley Peak at a leisurely pace. I
found one councillor already snoozing
as eight of us reached the campsite.
A culinary masterpiece in the Italian
idiom by Chef Boy-ar-dee topped off
a perfect day.
Wednesday, July 4 — A special kind
of independence awaited our motley
crew this 4th of July, for by 10 A. M.
the heavens loosed a veritable down-
pour which was to continue throughout
the day and night — a face-saving rea-
son for some tired people not to cUmb
that day. Stories were read, the camp-
site cleaned up as much as possible,
and much sacktime scored. We were
able to feed some less experienced
families of campers nearby with a new
delicacy that evening. (Dogs from all
over the park rushed to the scene to
help.) In bitter cold (38') we called
it a day (what kind, pray tell?), but
not till setting off a railroad flare given
us by a most helpful ranger.
Thursday, July 5 — Up early, we
bolted a token breakfast, had cocoa at
the ranger station, and shipped out tor
Roaring Brook and Kieve. The
weather was still a bit wet, but we
slipped and slid at record speed to the
patiently waiting bus. Underway,
John Ridcout notified the driver of a
possible BL action, but nothing came
of it, 1 am thankful to say. We ac-
tually passed two bicycles in our ve-
hicle, which gave us all a feeling of
accomplishment. Jay Perry provided
a show for all passing cars on Route
#1, as usual. Once on the Kieve
road Cocoa-Pot Perkins had to ignite
the holiday spirit, but three times he
disappointed us. The final incident of
a most delightful trip with good, rough
and ready campers came as Dick's
Deutsch Duck stalled in first gear
twice on the Kieve hill. Alex Yearley
pushed us all to fresh water, soap, and
warm beds. — Morrie Heckscher.
At 9:30 A. M. the Windy Island trip
left camp with John Heyl, John Mc-
Cord and Grant Dunn as the council-
lors in charge. The campers included
Merritt Bedell, Duncan Ely, Phil
Franke, Stuart Harper, Steve Nickless,
Graham Yearley, Mike Miller. Pete
Moore. Dixie Thayer, Jack Machen
and Bill White. Upon arriving the
first order of business was to set up
the camp. The boys spent most of
the morning stringing up their jungle
hammocks. When this order of busi-
ness was attended to a general swim
was called and everyone enjoyed it,
including the councillors.
Lunch consisted of plenty of peanut
butter and jelly sandwiches and pink
lemonade. The campers showed their
willingness to help by cleaning up
In the afternoon John Heyl and
John McCord took the campers on a
trip about the Island while Grant Dunn
took Mike Miller and Phil Franke fish-
ing. The rest of the afternoon was
spent swimming and playing.
After dinner, which consisted of
hamburgers, mashed potatoes, peas
and Hawaiian punch, three games of
hide-and-seek were played with prizes
of candy being awarded the winner.
The games were so arranged so every-
one got some candy. Taps were
sounded about 9:30 and everyone had
a good night's rest.
The second day started with Jack
Machen getting up at 4:30 to go fish-
ing. With the luck he had he should
have stayed in bed.
After breakfast a general play pe-
riod followed with some boys resting,
some fishing, and some exploring. A
few canoe trips were tried but the wind
and waves were too strong to make
much headway so all were turned back.
Right after dinner the boys retired
to get some sleep before raiding Sandy
Cove. Dressed in Marine type outfits
the campers slipped silently across the
lake and completely surprised Sandy
Cove. On Thursday the campers
were up early for breakfast and to
Jack Machen left in the rowboat but
the wind and waves were so strong that
they blew him across the lake and
down to Sandy Cove. The canoes had
little more success than the rowboat.
Finally with the help of the motorboat
— the canoes and rowboat were pulled
into camp, while the boys walked
around the edge of the lake. By 12
o'clock everybody was accounted for
and the trip was a success. — Grant
North Bunker and three councillors
were the last to leave the KIEVE dock
for their campsite, Sandy Cove. Camp
was set up while Mike Westcott, Tom
Reynolds. Billy Baer and Chris Ross
returned to camp to get a few forgot-
ten things. When Mike and his crew
came back everyone enjoyed the long
awaited lunch. After lunch there was
a rest period which was ended by the
arrival of John Smith and his Hatch's
While we were all swimming. Dick
and Henry Kennedy came to bring the
mail. After a brief visit they departed,
and were followed by Hatch's Point.
While Mike Westcott and Ted
Whitney were making dinner, and Jim
Quinn was occupying the boys with
rocks, a storm was threatening over-
head. Fortunately the storm didn't
hit. Dinner was eaten, and John Heyl
came over from Windy Island to pay
us a visit.
Later that night John Heyl and Jim
Quinn prevented one of Dick Koelle's
traditional raids with amazing tactics.
Bright and early the next morning
the campers awoke the councillors.
Breakfast was prepared and enjoyed.
The rest of the morning was spent in
various ways. Mac Keyser and Ned
McKoy discovered a secret cove,
Henry Wood managed to lose both
oars while rowing, many injured them-
selves on the "roller coaster." and John
Clark did something I'd rather not dis-
Again it was time to eat, and at
lunch all the campers got their candy.
Another rest was had and again John
Smith ended it, but, with him this time
was Dick Koelle and his Wood-Lot
The rest of the afternoon was spent
playing Orange-Black games. The
games .broke up at dinner time, and
another storm was overhead. THIS
time it hit us, so dinner was eaten in
When dinner was over. Jim Quinn
and the campers set land mines for
the expected raid from Windy Island.
Mike Westcott and Ted Whitney re-
tired early and were followed by Fred
Moller. Harry Cabot, Tom Iglehart.
and Nicky LeFevre. Jim Quinn and
the rest waited for the raid that finally
Since everyone was tired from the
raid, we aU slept until 8:45. We had
a late departure in terrible weather,
but eleven wet campers and three tired
councillors finally arrived at the
KIEVE dock. — Ted Whitney.
Arriving at the new campsite about
10:30 Tuesday morning we set up
camp and got settled, after which we
had lunch. After a short nap we
canoed to Sandy Cove for a dip and
to look over their campsite for a pos-
sible raid. It took us twice as long
to return home from the Cove due to
high winds and a very rough lake. We
had a great hamburger dinner, after
which we put on the finishing touches
to our jungle hammocks and then
went to Wood-Lot to plot for our raid
on Sandy Cove. After a niarshmallow
roast and some ghost stories we left
in five canoes. We managed to get
as far as the cove where Camp Kicve
is located when we heard a noisy row-
boat approaching. We were unable to
get into the shadows quickly enough
and were caught red-handed by the
councillors from Sandy Cove, and with
pride hurt we returned home to a cup
of hot chocolate and bed.
Wednesday morning found us all
sleeping late, but we managed to get
up about 10:00, packed a lunch and
with Wood-Lot went to Windy Island
by canoe for a picnic. After a short
dip and a paddle over to the Cove
again we began the rough trip home
which took about an hour and a half
because of the winds. We arrived
home in time for a hot stew dinner,
after which we went to Wood-Lot for
the evening of sailing, canoeing, ghost
stories, hot chocolate and marshmal-
lows. The weather remained quite
windy and we decided against any raid
for the night.
Thursday morning we again got up
late and taking one look at the rough
lake and the black skies we broke
camp as quickly as possible and
headed for Camp Kieve. We made it
just as the rain let loose, but only after
a very hard paddle against the wind
the entire way.
Wednesday night before bed we
had camp elections and as Miss
Hatch's Point we found the perfect one
— a person who managed to fall out
of his jungle hammock several times
in one night — our own Will Stettinius.
For best camper we elected Larry Doe
who even managed to spot a loon
early Wednesday morning before any-
one else was up. — John H. Smith.
FISHING TRIP TO
THiRD MACHIAS LAKE
NiNc hearty boys and two not so
hardy councillors left camp on Mon-
day morning with dreams of superb
fishing one hundred and sixty miles
up the road. A quick trip, three hours,
brought us to our destination. The
canoes were unloaded, and lunch was
assembled, tasted and inhaled. A
rough paddle followed as white caps
were everywhere, and after wallet los-
ing, canoe tipping, some flagrant uses
of the English language, we were at
our camp site, Getchell Point. Camp
was set up quickly, and fishing began.
We had much luck, and after a late
hamburger dinner all went to bed
eagerly. The next morning found the
lake even choppier, and fishing was
hard, so we paddled to an adjacent
lake, Wabassus, and again found an
ocean of waves. We had lunch and
paddled to a new campsite, nearer
known fishing spots. Again the
weather held us back, but a nice catch
was recorded. That night each pair of
boys had a campfire, roasted marsh-
mallows, and ghost stories were told.
The next day we shoved ofi" for home,
having caught sixty-seven fish, no
colds, and an appreciation for the
weather, wind and pickerel. Ricky
Crecraft, and Stephen Michael walked
off with most of the honors. Ricky
was Miss Machias, and Most Helpful,
while Stephen was Ma Machias and
Grubbiest. — J. D. Kistler.
Eight campers from North Glenayr
with Dick Koelle, and Corky Hart left
camp for Wood-Lot at about 10:30
A. M. Six campers and the two
councillors made the trip in canoes,
while Fred Levering and Pete Carn-
age decided to use a Sailfish. After
putting up the jungle hammocks and
getting settled, the campers quickly
consumed a lunch of sandwiches. The
campers passed the afternoon sailing
and swimming. Dick Koelle and five
campers returned to camp to pick up
forgotten candy, and get the mail. An
excellent dinner of hamburgers, corn,
and mashed potatoes by chef Dick
Koelle was enjoyed by all. This was
followed by an unexpected — but —
friendly visit from South Clenayr. The
councillors and campers of the two
campsites planned a gigantic raid on
Windy Island and Sandy Cove. After
the departure of South Glenayr, Dick
Koelle scared the campers with spine
tingling stories, but right at the crucial
moment of one of these legends the
attention of the campers was attracted
by female voices from across the lake.
They spent the next half hour engag-
ing. in conversation across the lake with
their newly made acquaintances. The
North Glenayr boys then heard voices
from the brush and found Dick and
Nancy, accompanied by John Heyl and
Jim Quinn, two spies from Windy Is-
land and Sandy Cove. At 11 P. M.
the combined forces of Hatch's Point
and Wood-Lot set out to attack Sandy
Cove. Sandy Cove, however, had
been warned, and the raid failed. The
cold and unhappy campers returned to
Hatch's Point for hot chocolate and
dry clothes. The campers finally got
to bed about 12:30 A. M.
The campers slept until 9:30 on the
Fourth of July, being understandably
tired after the previous night's fiasco.
After breakfast the combined forces of
Hatch's Point and Wood-Lot planned
a friendly visit to Windy Island and
Sandy Cove. The campers brought a
picnic lunch to Windy Island and com-
pared notes with their friends from
South Bunker Hill. After visiting Sandy
Cove, the Wood-Lot, and Hatch's
Point groups returned home for a sup-
per of spaghetti, salad and pudding.
After dinner Geoff Nuckols lost his
reading book and sent all the campers
on a fifteen minute hunt for it. The
book finally turned up in his jungle
hammock — of all places. A campfire
and elections followed. Geoff Nuckols
again stole the show. When time came
for nominating the best camper he said,
"I think I was the best camper — sort
of — ." Election results were as fol-
lows: Best Camper — Fred Leverins;
Sandiest — Geoff Nuckols; Miss Wood-
Lot — Pete Gamage.
Dick Koelle awakened the campers
with a 'TEXAS TWISTER" left over
from the fourth and the campers had
a feast. Half of the campers returned
home in Dick Koelle's car while four
campers and two councillors fought
off wind and rain to make it home in
canoes. — Dick Koelle.
PEMAQUID I TRIP
July 2 — Our journey began this
morning at 8:30 under a clear sky.
All went smoothly until our portage
into Pemaquid Pond. Here we learned
that we were not hardened to the trail,
but after the portage was completed
the boys felt that the experience was
worth-while. Lunch was the next stop
and Rock Island was a perfect place.
The wind was strong especially during
our paddle after lunch. Wc pitched
camp for the night on a beautiful point
above the Pemaquid River. The day
was complete with hamburger for din-
July 3 — Our destination today was
Fort Island. This is a long trip so
we were up at six and well into the
Pemaquid River by 8:30. To many
of the boys paddling down a river was
a new experience. Beaney LeFevrc
and Buck King had never shot rapids
before. Unfortunately the water level
was down some and there were a few
beaver dams which Tim Huston
chopped away. After lunch we por-
taged into salt water and found the
going rough due to the high waves and
strong wind. From the Pemaquid
River we passed through the Gut into
the Damariscotta River. While in the
Gut we stopped in South Bristol and
the boys spent their trip allowance.
From here it was a quick paddle to
Fort Island. We were all extremely
tired and ready for a hearty dinner
which consisted of ham basted with
pineapple juice, potatoes, peas and
milk. The boys were now improving
on their canoemanship. John van
Roden was awarded the paddling
trophy for the day. After this we went
July 4 — This was our day of rest and
as Ches Yellott and Tom Supplee
testified a much needed one. Every-
thing was behind schedule especially
meals. Fireworks was the order for
the day and when evening came we
ended the day with a beautiful display
of buzz bombs and Roman candles.
July 5 — At 8:37 we were paddling
up the Damariscotta River with an in-
coming tide. Our main ditticulty dur-
ing the whole day was a forty mile an
hour head wind which made our prog-
ress slow. Personally I had never seen
a harder wind to paddle against. Due
to the extra effort of all the boys we
were able to get past the Damaris-
cotta bridge before the tide changed.
When we reached the Mills at 3:30
Don Weston was there with the truck
to take us back to camp. The trip
was a great success for the boys of
North Harris. — Jim Gregory.
July 3-5, 1962
The chief purpose of this trip was to
give paddling experience to the novices
in South Harris who, without such
prior experience were to spend the
last three weeks of camp paddling in
the Canadian wilderness. The de-
sired practice was indeed obtained.
Departure was set for nine, but
forty minutes later after many tumps
were appUed we set off. The first one
and one-half mile portage was reached
after a considerable length of time, at
the rate of one mile per hour. Rich
Yellott"s and Peter Betz's difficulty in
finding the route, the wind, and Dave
Scull s propensity to lay down his
tumped canoe for constant readjust-
ment made us late.
After lunch the novices were placed
in the stems of their respective canoes.
What followed resembled the famed
"random motion" of molecules, but
luckily all the groups happened to
come together, several lakes later at a
beautiful campsite on Biscay Pond.
New heights of luxury were obtained
by the appropriation of jungle ham-
mock spreader sticks thoughtfully left
behind by the Pemaquid I trip.
A dehcious hamburger dinner was
chefed masterfully by Joe D* Antonio.
A pair of female intruders was fought
off by George Baker, though this only
led to Dune Cocroft's surprise at al-
most being caught in indehcate circum-
stances. D\Antonio earned a hard luck
reputation for the dubious value of his
Awake at 5:30 A. M.. the group
reached the Pemaquid River quite
quickly. They then managed to hit
every rock in the river. Mojo Rick
Koester walked almost as far as he
rode, and bowman. Frank Shanbacker.
almost died of frustration as his even,
choice of direction led to a grating of
rock against canoe.
Once the ocean was reached, the
group found clear sailing, hterally. to
the extent that Yellott and Fenhagen
were able to practice some tacking and
heeling over with a jerry-rigged poncho
for a sail.
A swift opposing tide enlivened the
approach to Fort Island, but all proved
equal to the task.
A warm welcome was received from
all the members of the Pemaquid 1
trip and especially Tim Huston, with
his hearty "Gotchas." The trips be-
came one as all performed very well
against extremely difficult paddling. —
[ 36 ]
WEST BRANCH TRIP
Early Sunday morning the twelve
campers and the two councillors who
comprised the West Branch (Penob-
scot ) trip left for the Big Eddy. Much
happened during this drive. Included
in the events were the loss of food,
the spilling of the peanut butter, two
flat tires, the loss of an axe and a re-
flector oven, and the WARNING, up-
on our arrival at Big Eddy, that no
one had made it down the river alive.
Despite this generous advice by our
astute well-wishers all were able to
perk up enough courage to paddle
across the river and set up camp.
Then we and the bugs had dinner and
went to bed.
On Monday morning we arose at
8:00 A. M., then ate breakfast,
packed, and set out down the river.
We shot the Upper Ambajackamus
Falls, portaged around the lower falls,
passed through the Horse Race, which
is a series of swift pitches, and finally
came into some smooth water known
as the Sourdnahunk Deadwater. At
the end of this quiet stretch of the
river is the Sourdnahunk Falls. As
we arrived at the portage trail which
circumscribes the falls the weather
threatened. Consequently we stopped
short and tried to set up camp before
the torrents came. We did not stop
in time! Everyone was SOAKED and
John Perkins had a swimming pool in
his jungle hammock. At the end of
the rain all spirits and wood were
dampened. Hugh Nevin and Peter
Betz were the wettest of all the camp-
ers. In their blundering effort to help
out they deftly swamped a canoe.
After all this excitement an attempt
at a fire was made. Finally a fire was
a reality. Quickly spaghetti was put
on to cook only to be spread all over
the ground when Rick Koester kicked
the pot. This achievement greatly in-
fluenced the vote that was to name
him, with Peter Betz, as Miss Penob-
In order to heighten our spirits we
slept late Tuesday morning. Before
lunch we traveled down the river and
completed portages around Abol Falls
and Pockwockamus Falls. After
lunch, during which Joe D'Antonio
stood out in midstream on a rock to
escape the bugs, we proceeded down
the river towards Debsconeag Falls.
Here we met two lovely maidens who,
bathed in ignorance, misinformed us
about the portage trail, caught and
kept a four inch perch, and screeched
at their flea ridden children and dogs.
Finally, Bob Koelle discovered the
portage trail and led the party through
it. This allowed us to travel further
down the river to a beautiful campsite
on the Debsconeag Deadwater.
Wednesday was a rest day. Every-
one took advantage of the sunny
weather and the beach to sun bathe.
The accomplishments of the day in-
cluded a sunburn by Alex Yearley, a
chocolate chip cake by Kim Moller
and Richy Yellott and a broken jungle
hammock by the 'crammers.' Also
seen were Hugh Nevin and Frank
Shanbacker gabbing like old women.
Other than this sight the only thing to
mar the day was a brief thunderstorm.
The biggest shock of all came on
Thursday morning when the canoe
trip ran into a huge log jam that was
to halt all progress and force the trip-
pers to return to their last campsite.
Joe D'Antonio, Kim Moller, and Mike
Westcott walked and thumbed their
way into Millinocket from where they
informed Dick Kennedy of their
plight. The remainder of the group
spent the day lounging around watch-
ing Henr>' Fenhagen and Jay Perr\
plav cards, or John Rideout and Richy
Yellott fish. This air of leisure marked
the whole day.
On Friday we were up and off to
Camp KJeve by 11:00. In juxtaposi-
tion to the ride up the ride back to
Kieve was uneventful and smooth.
We arrived at Kieve around 4:00
P. M. All were tired but all had an
appreciation of the majestic country
we had just left. — Dave Scull.

parted at the dim hour of 6:45. July

and Jack Kistler set off for the Third
Machias Lake on Tuesday. After
several stops for gee-dunk and ice. we

the Lake. After sening up camp and
havins lunch we fished for five hours.
catching forty-odd pickerel. A deli-
cious dinner, tales ot bears, and stories
we all settled down to a long summer's
nap. Emory sat up all night looking
for Sniokey but to no avail.
The next day saw more fishing and
exploring. At the day's end we had
seventy-nine pickerel to our credit.
We fished for chubs, helped a canoe
party lift a dam gate, ate another fill-
ing dinner, told even more stories, and
again hit the sack. At three that
morning a raccoon visited our hot
chocolate can and scared us all as
thoughts of the ever present bear were
with us. After regaining composure
we slept. The last day saw us pack,
travel to First Machias Lake, and fish
for two hours. Our grand total was
then upped to eighty-eight fish. Dur-
ing the trip home John van Roden
copped most of the electoral honors.
He was declared Miss Machias and
Sandiest. Denny Emory was elected
Best Fisherman, and John Perkins

Andy Sutton won "Amos and Andy"
honors. All in all, a most fruitful trip.

As THE climax of days of preparation
by a most competent staff of six vet-
eran trippers our party of twenty-six
— minus one unfortunately sick, Larry
Doe — campers, the South Glenayr
bears led by Jim and Dick, and the
Bunker Hills led by Mike, John, Mor-
rie, and Dune, drove olY on a glorious
morning for the White Mountains and
Dolly Copp campsite.
Arriving in time for a fashionable
lunch of peanny-bue-and-jay (what
else?), the campers showed the rather
impressive amount that they had
learned while on their first trips this
year by setting up their jungle ham-
mocks and personal campsites by
Being ofticially designated a "rest
day," it was no wonder that a rather
lazy atmosphere permeated the en-
campment. Never was the day of
WPA like this, as the woods suc-
cumbed to the scavenging of wood-
hunters and excited reports of the find-
ing of the fabled beaver dam of
Smokey the Bear. As smoke wafted
the odors of a blessed meal by Father
John, all filled up on a terrific meal
of hamburg, onions, mushrooms, and
potatoes. It was plenty, for only Billy
Baer, Merritt Bedell, and of course
speedy Chris Ross were enough awake
for after-dinner cocoa and campfire.
So ended the first day.
We were up by six, with a few vital
exceptions. A Koelle breakfast of
home-fries and the works allowed us
to hop into our cars and be off for the
big chmb at a refreshing 10:45 A. M.
The Bunker Hillers went together to
Randolph where the Air Line Trail to
Mts. Madison and Adams commenced.
Crossing the ditch for a Texas gas
pipeline, into which only Iglehart, Mol-
ler and Yearley fell, all ascended a
pleasant trail through fabulous woods.
Stopping for lunch when many worms
were crying and some had had more
of a taste of mountain climbing than
others, we split up — John leading back
by another trail ten of the boys, and
Mike and Morrie continuing on with
Ross. Ely, Miller. Machen. Thayer,
and Franke. The views awaiting these
toilers made all effort most worth-
Jim"s hardy crew walked to Lone-
some Lake in the middle of a cloud-
burst. From here they found a new
route to Cannon Mountain. The boys
were exposed to some challenging
climbing, from which Charlie Behlmer,
to name one. really advanced a lot.
The view of magnificent clouds and
of Franconia Notch made this foray of
South Glenayr's most exciting and
worth-while. Finally, one must not for-
get Reed Shingle's lovely pose after
missing a turn when running down the
mountain for two miles.
Back to the campsite after an im-
pressive first taste (for most) of moun-
tain climbing. Big Greg produced his
ham special supper, after which camper
and councillor alike refused to evade
the sack when it was so appealing.
Surrounded by hoards of woodsy
girls who had violated our sanctuan^
during the night, we awoke, cooked a
big breakfast, and leisurely took off for
the candy store and then baths and a
real bed back at Kieve. So ended a
trip that gave all a real glimpse of
mountain climbing, and to those who
desired it. the spectacular rewards
available. — Morrie Heckscher.
PEMAQUID RIVER TRIP
Monday morning immediately after
breakfast, three wanigans. five canoes,
fifteen packs, and fifteen men were off
for a truncated Pemaquid trip.
.A.t Pemaquid Pond we launched
ourselves and after an effortless pad-
dle to Biscay Pond we set up our first
campsite. A threatening cloud pro-
vided the impetus for a hasty setting
up of jungle hammocks. After lunch
the rains came, lightning flashed, and
Tuesday saw the party portage Bris-
tol Mills, spend their allowance, and
an African Queen adventure on the
Pemaquid River. Crecraft made his
quarter into the purchasing power of
SI. 75. Nancy arrived that evening
with ice cream and cake. It's ahvays
nice to rough it.
The next day saw the group attack
large waves, which eventually brought
them to Fort Island. Alas we were
sharing the island with a girFs camp.

The last day saw a rough and tough
sojourn up the Damariscotta River.

FORT ISLAND TRIP
July 30-Aug. 1
At 10:30 A. M. Monday, July 30th
the Fort Island trip departed from the
Walker's house on the Damariscotta
River. Three stops later and four and
a half hours of paddling, ten boys,
four councillors and five canoes ar-
rived at Fort Island in Boothbay Har-
Tuesday morning at 1 1 : 00 the
group made a trip to scenic Seal Cove
in three canoes. Upon returning a hot
lunch was served after which we all
left for East Boothbay and a spending
spree in the nearest candy store, and
to see the boat yards there. We re-
turned in a thick fog at 6:00 tor din-
ner, but not before Will Stettinius and

The morning of Wednesday, August
2 greeted us with an extremely thick
fog. After a breakfast of bacon and
eggs the morning activity became ex-
ploring the Island. During the after-
noon the skies cleared for an hour or
so and some canoeing and war began.
Before anyone realized it Terry
Rhoads was swept away with the cur-
rent with clothes and all — but not be-
fore speedy Jeff Slack and Robby
Richardson had thrown their canoe
into 1st gear and pulled Terry in to
Thursday was a beautiful, sunny
day and after a very early breakfast
we began the five and a half hour pad-
dle back up the Damariscotta River
with a good stiff head-wind. Finally
we pulled into Damar. Mills where we
were picked up by Don Weston and
driven back to camp. — John Smith.
WHITE MOUNTAIN TRIP
July 30-Aug. 1
Amid cloudy weather we pulled out
Monday morning for the White Moun-
tains. The drive to the mountains was
uneventful except that we didn't take
the Route that we had planned to take.
At 3:30 we arrived at the Dolly Copp
campground and leisurely pitched
camp. This being the first night on
the trail we had the traditional ham-
burger dinner. In order that the boys
might better their skills in the art of
camping we let them cook most of the
meals under our supervision.
We were up early and ready to
climb by 8 : 00 but much to our dismay
rain immediately came. Mt. Adams
would not be climbed today. We had
more rain this morning than many
states receive in a month — 2"
(inches). When the rain let up we
piled into the cars and took a short
drive to Berlin and then through
Franconia Notch where it was too
cloudy to see the Old Man of the
Mountain. By this time we were just
leaving the fragrant aroma of paper
pulp. To end this scenic drive we re-
turned via the Kancamagus highway
reaching the elevation of 2895' (feet).
While preparing dinner this evening
Stephen Michael sat on his log where
he was harmless. The speciality of
this meal was Dick Koelle's salad and
Paul Newlin's wonderful spaghetti.
Early to bed and early to rise with
dreams of Mt. Washington dancing in
their eyes. (Say, that rhymes.) We
were on the trail by 9:00 under beau-
tiful skies. At 10:15 we reached the
ranger's station which gave us our first
view of the Head Wall. We were now
ready for the big climb. While follow-
ing a mountain stream we were soon
at the foot of the Head Wall where
Ewing Walker, Ricky Crecraft, Aub
Huston, and Geoff Nuckols had to be
dissuaded from a snowball fight.
From the Head Wall to the Summit we
reached the top in 45 mins. Our total
climbing time from the highway to the
top was 3V2 hours. It was a tre-
mendous and beautiful climb.
After a traditional Gregory ham
supper, the boys had their elections
along with marshmallows and cocoa.
Miss Martha Washington was Jon
Piper and Jay Brown was best camper.
Tom McKoy was named most helpful
by the council.
And our FLAG was still there . . .
— Dick Koelle.
LOLDS ISLAND =1
July 31 -Aug. 2
Elenen eager boys from South
Bunker Hill departed from Round
Pond on July 31 where they were met
by a lobster boat, and taken over to
their island campsite. All came
equipped with spreader sticks, packs,
and plenty of energy. A huge lunch
of peeny-boo and J was inhaled by the
group. After a rest period several of
the group, led by John Heyl. explored
the island. Another group explored
and found a treasure of lobster at a
nearby pound. Yearley. Franke. Be-
dell. Harper, and Peter Moore com-
bined their allowance and had a crus-
tacean feast right there on the beach.
\'isits were exchanged the next day
between the two camps. Rowboating.
clam digging, and explorations oc-
cupied the fellows for most of the day.
Spaghetti and ghost stories all made us
rest comfortably. Phil Franke copped
honors as Best Camper.
The trip back the next day was
beautiful as Mother Nature did her
best to make us remember this lovely
spot, in the ocean, off the rock-bound
Maine coast. — Corky Hart.
LOUD S ISLAND =2
North Bunker Hill with Dick Ken-
nedy, Jim Quinn and Tim Huston left
for Loud"s Island on Tuesday morning
under fog and cloudy skies. Spirits
were high however with the prospect
of a boat ride to the island. Imme-
diately upon disembarking. Dick or-
dered the jungle hammocks put up as
rain seemed imminent. Tim and Dick
readied fried spam sandwiches while
the campers collected driftwood and
raised hammocks. After lunch the
group split into two groups: one being
headed by Billy Baer. and John Clark
the other. There was feverish fort
building at either end of the beach
until Clark's boys found a giant de-
posit of clay. For the next half hour
a clay slinging battle raged up and
down the beach with each side charg-
ing until exhausted.
A hamburger supper was welcomed
by hungry mouths, after which ghost
stories and bed. That evening Fred
Moller screamed several times as some
lobstermen must have as they dreamt
of Kieve near pots.
Skinny dipping, sunbathing and
camp visiting occupied the second day.
A clam hunt was of most importance,
and Harry Cabot won honors with
many species. That evening there
were more stories and visits from
The next morning found a beautiful
day. and a lovely trip home. Gee-
dunk was bought with the allowances,
and the trip back to camp was accom-
phshed in a short time. All the boys
were ready and willing workers, es-

DEAD RI\ ER TRIP
July 28-August 3. 1962
A CLEAR, sunny Saturday marked the
beginning of the Dead River Trip, the
projected 12 day. 17 man. 150 mile
long voyage for the North Harris boys.
But misfortune began early to take
its toll, as Bucky King was forced to
return from the starting point on Lake
Flagstaff' in the same truck in which
he had forgotten to load his pack.
Once under way. and after some
slight confusion as to direction was
cleared up. a quick two-hour paddle
brought the group to an attractive
sandy landing place, with nearly ideal
sites for jungle hammocks, tents and
fireplace, and a virtuallv unlimited
supply of dr\' driftwood for fuel.
The first in a long series of appetiz-
ing Westcott-cooked meals was fol-
lowed by a gala songfest under still
elear skies, amidst the beautiful Bige-
low Mountains. Pete Betz enjoyed an
evening of glory and distinction for
having started the fire with only one
The group departed refreshed and

lake's end at Flagstaff Dam. Tom

winners of the day-long unofticial ca-
Varied bits of information about
Dead River were garnered from per-
sons in the area, though none was
really satisfying or convincing, and it
was agreed to attempt a 2-mile por-
The next morning a friendly pas-
serby agreed to conduct most of the
portage in his truck, leaving for us only
a % mile walk with empty canoes; and
in some cases the available manpower
permitted the employment of three
men on a single canoe.
An uneventful portage was followed
by a swim in the rapids and a very
eventful afternoon, and evening, and
night. Seven miles of easy downstream
paddling brought us to the decaying
Dead River Dam, through which it
was impossible to drag the canoes.
Another quarter mile of level rapids
brought us to the fifty foot Grand
Falls. The search for a portage trail
necessitated dragging back up to the
dam, and crossing the river at a milder
place. But this operation was some-
what hampered by a 2-hour downpour.
Camp was finally made beneath pines
surrounding a seasonally vacant log-
ging camp, on a bank overlooking the
dam. Dinner was finished by torch-
light at 11 P. M. Pots were left un-

THE WILDERNESS TRIP
July 24-August 14, 1962
The trip began at 7:00 A. M., July
24 for Canada. However, its progress
was halted within the first half-hour
because of a flat tire. The tire was
quickly changed and we rolled mer-
rily on our way. The trip was 750
miles in length all the way to Senne-
terre, Canada. Here we boarded a
bush train and went to Kapatachouane
Club. This was a deserted logger's
town but the base camp to which we
were headed was nearby.
The next day we went by canoe to
the second base camp with our trip
leader, Ames Luce, the doctor, Dick
Frankle, and a J. C, Bob King. We
then learned how to tump wanigans
and canoes, paddle, and use an axe.
The following day we paddled to
Little Kapatachouane Lake and
camped for the night. The next few
days saw us paddle through Five Mile
Bay, visit a trapper, trip the Kapata-
chouane River, visit Len's forestry
tower, shoot rapids, portage, enjoy
rest stops, shoot more rapids, and
wreck a canoe in doing so.
After two days' rest to repair the
canoe we started our return to base
camp. We made the mile portage to
Traverse Creek, paddled down stream
until we came to Camachigama River.
After completing this River we had
a rest day. We soaked up the sun,
fished and had a good rest.
During the next two days we pad-
dled and lined up-river until we came
to a series of dreaded portages — a two
miler and three half milers. After
those portages the going was easy.
Kim Moller bought a Siberian Huskie
from a trapper who was promptly
named Nicky. We ended our trip in
another day, and Rich Yellott was
named Best Camper.
George Baker, Joe D'Antonio,
Henry Fenhagen, Ricky Koester, Hugh
Nevin, Frank Shanbacker, Alex Year-
ley, Rich Yellott, Kim Moller and Jay
Perry are to be congratulated for turn-
ing in a wonderful trip. It will be re-
membered by all, a trip that many will
never have a chance to take. — Dunc

Jim; 26, 1962— M. Westcott
After many days of preparatory
work the council, on Tuesday morn-
ing, made final provisions for the ar-
rival of the campers. While Dick
Kennedy met many of the campers in
Philadelphia, Dave Scull, Jack Kistler,
Nancy Kennedy and Dick Koelle
readied themselves for the trip to Bos-
ton where the remainder of the boys
were picked up. At nine o'clock the
drivers left, and the rest of the coun-
cil contemplated the influx.
Such thoughts were soon interrupted
by the ascendance of some early ar-
rivals. Except for a few of these the
day was relatively free from the yells
and screams of the campers. This si-
lence was abruptly broken at seven
o'clock when the first of the Boston
cars appeared on top of the hill. Fast
and furious was the pace of incoming
vehicles until the Philadelphia bus, the
last of the transports, arrived at eight
As soon as the campers alighted on
the Kieve soil they were told where to
go and went. Next they were sum-
moned to dinner, and after the meal —
sent to bed. In the process they man-
aged to make their presence known to
all. Finally, however, all noise was
quelled and the camp fell asleep — end-
ing a most hectic day.
June 27, 1962 — John Smith
The first full day of camp began
this morning at 7:15. The morning
was taken up with a tour of the camp
for the new KIEVE campers, and a
physical for all by the nurse who was
accused by some of the boys as being
nosey. Everyone unpacked and had
their first swim in the crystal clear
water of Lake Damariscotta. During
the day the following boys made the
difhcult 600 yard swim to the Island:
W. Baer W. Stettinius P. Moore
H. Cabot J. Slack B. King
N. Fales N. McKoy B. LeFevre
S. Nickless J. Clark J. D'Antonio
S. Pack S. Harper T. McKoy
H. Wood H. Fenhagen C. Ross
P. Gamage C. Behlmer D. Ely
And our own Will Stokes, who with a
couple of the other councillors led the
camp in singing about Good Old
Florida U. at the camp fire after din-
In the afternoon football game "The
Supplees" smashed the "Mollers" with
a score of 20-2, and Supplee himself
made two touchdowns. The council-
lors actively supervised the game!
Other activities during the day in-
cluded a couple of tennis games, some
horse-shoes, shop, canoeing, volley-
ball, and of course a fishing trip with
Jack Kistler which didn't make out
quite as well as it sometimes does.
The day closed with a campfire on the
water front with a marshmallow roast
and songfest. Taps were sounded at
8:30 and the camp came, as usual,
to a quick and dead SILENCE?
June 28, 1962 — J. Gregory
Our day began at 7:30 with a clear
sky. After the duties were completed,
the campers plunged into the morning
activities. Hill Ferguson passed Watt
Reynolds, Ricky Koester, Jon Piper
and Mac Keyser on their Island swim.
Bob Koelle and John Heyl worked
with the new campers on rifiery.
Grant Dunn took some boys out fish-
ing while Dick Koelle and Dune Co-
croft supervised a volleyball game.
After a much needed rest period all
the campers were ready for an after-
noon of activities. Fred Levering.
Peter Betz. and Stephen Michael found
sailing quite exciting due to a 12 MPH
Morrie Heckscher gave beginning
tennis instruction to the boys who had
never played before. The afternoon
ended with a little humor. Dune Co-
croft and his boys at the archery field
lost 9 arrows. Not bad for the first
After a dehcious roast beef dinner

JLNE 29. 1962 — Grant W. Dunn
The loud ringing of the gong awoke
the camp at 7:30 A. M. Bright eyed
and bushy tailed campers hurried to
wash and get prepared for flag raising
and breakfast. After breakfast duties
were assigned and at 9:15 the first
laundry call was made. By Indian
circle all bunkhouses had reported
with their laundn, baskets.
The results of the activities of note
were that Willie Stettinius. John
Clark. Jeff Slack, won their white ar-
rows in archery, and Rob Femald
won his red arrow. The water front
was the site of the biggest naval battle
since the Second World War. All of
the canoes and two rowboats were
After a tasty lunch and rest period
the afternoon activities began with a
fever pitch. Down on the ball field
a grudge game was being fought tooth
and nail. The result of this furious
battle was that the \'ictory Wreath
was awarded to South Harris which
scored a 10-5 triumph over North
Harris. The waterfront was again
the site of another naval engagement
with the results beins the same as the
morning's. In the evening Madison
Square Garden in Innisfree was the
scene of many hard fought boxing and
wrestling matches. The highlight of
the evening was a wrestling match be-
tween the Overweight Champion of
the World. Councillor Grant Dunn,
and the Undenveight Champion of
Camp Kieve. Geoffrey Nuckols. After
two hard fought periods the deter-
mination of Geoff' Nuckols began to
tell and after 30 seconds of the third
period he took the full measure of
Grant Dunn by pinning him to the
mats. A rematch has been scheduled.
After the evening activities the flag
was lowered, the camp sang songs, and
camp was declared secure at 8:30.
June 30. 1962— Dick Koelle
Today dawned warm. hazy, and
humid — and stayed that way. Duties
were followed by a critical inspection,
which was amazingly good, consider-
ing the early stage of the season.
There was a full slate of activities,
with the debut of Nature. Hughes
Pack shot his Pro-Marksman, while
Jeff Slack and Will Stettinius got their
Black Arrows. Iglehart's Eagles
stomped Koester's Coasters. 3-1 in
volleybaU. At Franklin Field. Frank
\'an Dusen and Robby Richardson led
the Wombats to a 14-2 grid victory
over the Potatoes.
During swim. Alec Yearley proved
the difference as the Blacks prevailed
in \\ ater Polo. 3-1.
The afternoon saw Andy (or is it
Willie ) Sutton and Beany LeFevre get
their White Arrows: Robby Femald
shoot Bar I and Robby Richardson.
Bar III: and Freddy Nloller sit in a
canoe. The feature attraction was a
soccer game between Miller's High
Lifes and Fenhagen's Finks. Paul
Ncwlin, Ricky Crccraft, and hlcct
Ferguson led the High Lifes to a 3-1
score. After supper, the O. D. made
a mistake — Capture the Flag. The
cries of "One-two-three caught" were
soon drowned out by, "He cheated."
The game was declared void and we
hit the sack.
July 1, 1962 — Dick Kennedy
The day dawned threatening, but
soon the wind swung around to the
North West, assuring us of another
crystal clear day.
After duties and tub all cabins stood
the first full scale inspection, and all
were in remarkably fine shape. How-
ever North Harris was a bit better

July 2, 1962 — Monday —
Another beautiful day! — The Mt.
Katahdin trippers breakfasted early
and shoved oft' for the highest moun-
tain (1 Mile) in Maine at 6:30.
After breakfast the first Pemaquid
River trip and the anglers bound for
the Machias Lakes departed, leaving
a skeleton crew behind.
John Smith alternately entertained
and nauseated us with a very profes-
sional dissection of "Yummy's" previ-
ous night's catch, a woodchuck. Don
and Polly served us a most delicious
picnic lunch outside, and after a rather
unruly rest period, activities were un-
der a full head of steam. John Clark
qualified for his Pro-Marksman, Stu
Harper, Noel Fales, and others braved
the white caps with sailor, John Mc-
Cord, and a soccer game ensued in
which Fenhagen's Furious Fusiliers
bested D'Antonio's Dawdling Dilet-
tantes, — 3-1 .
After supper all remaining in camp
packed for the morrow's trips — and
then to bed.

A cold, windy morning greeted the
campers when they were awakened at
Duties followed the usual hearty
breakfast. Everyone did their job
well. The morning activity period
produced a baseball game in which
Pete Gamage's Garbage Mouths beat
Paul Newlin's Nuts 3 to 1. Billy
White led the losers in base hits, but
it wasn't enough to offset the power
of John Clark who drove in two runs.
Down at the Archery field Watt Rey-
nolds and Stu Harper qualified for
their White Arrows.
In the afternoon on the football
field Mac Keyser"s Canadian Bush-
men defeated Billy White's Bar-room
FHes 20 to 0.
In the evening a scavenger hunt was
held. The pace was fierce but North
Glenayr returned first with all the ar-
ticles. They received a chocolate
layer cake as first prize.
After taps a pillow fight erupted on
the tennis courts with South Harris

rehearsals for the forthcoming bunk-

devoted to cleaning out the bunk-

that had been airing out since the
trips. Though no official announce-

trait is one that we are all guilty of,

Nickless was a tiger on defense.
In all candor, 1 must say that the
Orange council were "the class" of
the evening, as Dick Koelle's hitting
and pitching prevailed, 5-2.
We welcomed George Baker back
to camp at Flag, and a particularly
lusty Kieve cheer and a dip capped
off the day.

Cloudy skies threatened the morn-

welcomed by all after the cold wet
morning. An extended rest period

changed and a beautiful afternoon

On Tuesday morning the O. D.
awoke to a damp and dreary day, and,
consequently fretted about how to oc-
cupy the campers. In a stalling tech-
nique it was decided to have a late
breakfast. This brief period of quiet
allowed the O. D. to gather his frayed
wits and to outline a program for the
After breakfast the campers joyfully
scampered back to the cabins to clean
them. Instead of those dreary every-
day duties the boys had an oppor-
tunity to clean the cabins, and. of
course, greeted the suggestion with
Once inspection was a reality, all
gathered at Innisfree for Indian Cir-
cle. The activities for the morning
included: drama, bombardment, na-
ture, and shop. Apropos of the weath-
er the shopworkers busied themselves
making model boats.
To supplement the regular activity
period there was a movie about Indian
arts and crafts shown before lunch. A
deep silence gripped Innisfree until, in
the last minutes of the suspenseful film
the identitv of the murderers was re-
vealed to the questioning audience.
During the afternoon the weather
cleared up and allowed such activities
as archery, riflery and sailing to be
added to the afternoon program. In
addition it made possible a compul-
sory swim. Everyone uttered words of
agreement and mirth concerning the
wisdom of the swim.
The evening's activities were a rare
combination of hide-and-go-seek and
free time. Once these festivities ended
it was time for the O. D."s favorite
activity — sleeping!
Wednesday, July 25 — John Smith
The day dawned clear, sunny and
warm and stayed that way for the en-
tire day. After the regular duties, in-
cluding such favorites as tennis court
duty and the 'ioved" archery field
duty, the activity period began.
Many types of instruction filled the
morning period of activity. South

in preparation for the Damariscotta
River trip, the life saving class met and
learned some of the various methods
of pulling drowning victims to safety,
and the sailors met for a discussion of
the various sailing terms and pro-

The day closed with Fla-z. the Kieve
song, and pravers and all turned in for
their nightly ghost story and sleep.
Thursday, July 26. 1962 —
When I awoke this morning I found
gray skies and a httle rain. It was a
frontal out of the southwest. Due to
the rainy weather most ot the activi-
ties were geared to the indoors. Ted
Whitney conducted his first chiss in ra-
dio which the campers enjoyed. Dur-
ing the first half of the morning there
was a football game at which time Fer-
nald's team was victorious over Rich-
ardson's mighty warriors by a score of
11-7. Just as Denny Emory and 1
finished painting the deck of the new
Sailfish it began to rain quite hard.
When all charged into Innisfree there
was Orange and Black competition in
a big game of bombardment.
The highlight of the morning was
replacing the crossbar which holds up
the Gong. With the ingenious ellorts
of Dick, Jack and Grant, a few coun-
cillors and a few sidewalk superin-
tendents the new top bar was replaced
with ease. The big worry in doing the
job was due to the simple fact the Gong
weighs 1,000 to 1,500 pounds. To
end up the morning Freddy Moller re-
ceived his Marksman in rifiery, and
Andy Sutton received his Marksman
After a long rest period we all
watched a movie in Innisfree. At 4:30
there was a quick tub. After dinner
we celebrated Ches Yellott's birthday.
The movie this evening was entitled
'Tlorian." It was enjoyed by all be-
cause it was a horse story. At 9:00
we went to bed.
Friday. July 27 — Grant Dunn
A beautiful sunrise was quickly
overshadowed by cloudy skies as the
campers greeted another day at Kieve.
The usual morning procedures were
followed and the activity period was
started with some limitations on choice
of activities due to a smaller camp with
South Harris on a trip, and a Black
and Orange baseball game. The
Oranges won the game on John van
Roden's perfect pitching. Ewing
Walker was their big gun with a double
and triple. At the rifiery range John
Clark and Ned McKoy earned marks-
man first class while Bucky King
earned his Marksman. In the after-
noon the Black took their revenge on
the Orange and soundly trounced them
in a track meet 42-29. Tom Supplee
was the only double winner. He won
the sprint and hurdles for the Orange.
Other winners were: Ricky Crecraft,
Distance Run; Peter Betz, Broad
Jump; Noel Fales, Softball throw. The
relay races were split between the two
teams. Also at the rifle range, Phil
Franke earned Marksman First Class.
In the evening the Blacks continued
their winning ways by winning two
out of three French and Indian games
and tying on the last one. Ricky Cre-
craft and Ches Yellott were standouts
for the Blacks.
Evening prayers were led by our
Chaplain, John Smith, and the boys
retired at 8:30 after another full day

in rapid succession. Surprisingly
naughty North Glenayr won the prize.
John Smith discussed the fifth and
final quality of Christian leadership,
usins the story of Jonathan and David
to illustrate— SINCERITY.
In addition to the councillors' fam-
ilies, Tom Iglehart and Terry Rhoads
also had guests for the deUcious steak
luncheon. A full range of afternoon
activities was highlighted by the
dogged, persistent island swim of Fred
Moller and Dick Kennedy; the cheer
was deafening as Freddy pulled him-
self out of the water, chilled but proud.
In the evening all witnessed a strong
Black touch football team eke out a
victory over the undermanned but
courageous Orange aggregation.
A rousing Kieve song and cheer put
the lid on another day.
Monday. July 30 — Jack Kistler
After a breakfast of pancakes and
doughnuts a full camp prepared for
the third and last trips. The Glenayrs
took off for Pemaquid. and the White
Mountains. This left only the Bunker
Hill boys in camp to dream of their
ensuing trip tomorrow.
Games in Innisfree. fishing, and
packing occupied the morning. After
a rainy rest hour, the sun shone, and
the boys enjoyed the waterfront, fish-
ing, swimming, sailing and sunbathing.
Tnat evening saw the boys cutting
spreader sticks, and final packing.
Taps was welcome as they dreamed of
Loud's Island and the salt water fun
in store the next day.
No Reports — Tuesday, July 31,
Thursday, August 2
Friday, August 3, 1962 —
A briUiant morning greeted the
tired campers as they awakened at
7:30. The usual morning procedures
were followed and when it was time
for activities most chose the waterfront.
All of the sailing craft and canoes were
in use. A few fellows tried tennis and
archery but the heat drove them to the
water in no time. A long swim under
perfect conditions was enjoyed by all.
Afternoon activities saw the boys at
the numerous locations trying their
skills. After a dehcious meal of fish
and chips evening activities took place.
North Bunker Hill took South Bunker
Hill in a game of soccer, 2-0. The
flag was lowered at 8:15, and the camp
was secured for the night.
Saturday, August 4 — Dick Koelle
A cloudy morning was featured by
an informal Orange-Black baseball
game. Tight defense and back-to-back
hits by John van Roden and Jeff Slack
gave the Oranges a 1-0 victory.
After lunch and rest, through which
the O. D. almost slept. Stu Harper's
Pro-Marksman and Harry Cabot's
Sharpshooter almost stole the show
from a football game between Walker's
Runners and Gamage's Garbage. The
game was close, with Mike Miller
(three touchdowns) and Paul Newlin
trading catches in a brilliant duel, but
Stephen Michael's late efforts sw^ng
the decision to the Runners. 9-6.
Meanwhile. Hill started an Interme-
diate Swimmer class at the waterfront.
During dinner, the third new sail-
boat and the gear for all three arrived
with Dick from Boston. We were
amazed at the height of the masts and
the size of the booms.
Evening activities saw South Bunk-
er, led by Miller, Machen, and Nick-
less, defeat North Bunker in football,
4-0. N. McKoy, Baer, and Company
were overpowered by cheerleader Gra-
ham Yearley's forces.
The South has risen again.
Sunday, August 5, 1962 —
The day dawned foggy and cheer-
less; however by afternoon the sun had
burned through. This morning's in-
spection, a universally poor one, was
won by North Glenayr.
Chapel, which was held in Innisfree,
was particularly noteworthy for John
Smith's lucid talk on a difficult subject,
the purpose, kinds, and ways of pray-
Only the Kieve family was here for
a delicious chicken dinner. All of us
were saddened to hear that Toni
Quinn, who had taken care of the
Kistlers' children, had to leave for
home on Monday.
A sailing regatta, a touch football
game, riflery, swimming instruction,
tennis and work on the three new sail-
boats provided the afternoon activities.
At four o'clock a cry went up all
over the hill, ''Bishop's here!" All
descended on the weary traveller; some
to peer for the first time, others to

touch football game ensued between
the council teams. With the wide

An evening dip. Flag, prayers, and
lusty Kieve song and cheer capped off
another busy day.
Monday, August 6, 1962 —
The campers awoke to a muggy,
overcast day which quickly burned
away as we ate breakfast. The usual
activities occupied the camp, with the
football field enjoying the most activity.
Supplee's Suckers defeated Cabot's Cu-
ties 6-4 after a closely fought battle.
Wayne, our kitchen buddy, showed
them all at the rifle range, with some
Davy Crockett type rifle work and won
A hardbook rest hour was followed
by a waterfront activity period. The
day was very hot. and the water felt
ever so good. North Harris left for
dinner at Dick's, and the rest ate din-
ner and enjoyed a game of French and
Indians. Crecraft was in jail most of
the evening. Taps after a quick dip
ended a fine day.
Tuesday, August 7, 1962 —
A sky full of broken clouds and
gusts of wind pervaded the Camp
Kieve environs. Throughout the day
there was the fear of an impending
With the exception of three startling
events, the day proved a typical one.
The first of these was that Dave Scull
ran the rifle range. The second oc-
currence was the shattering of the flag-
pole. The final miracle, which proved
the fearful signs true, happened at din-
ner when Polly played with the lights
and received an immediate cheer.
Everyone enjoyed the fiasco, and left
smiling with candy in mouth. A rous-
ing game of capture the Flag ended the
Wednesday, August 8, 1962 —
Camp awoke to a rather dismal day
which later burned off to a fairly clear
and windy one. After the usual pe-
riod of regular duties, activities period
began with a play practice which is to
be presented "Watersports" weekend.
After a short review of the play, those
in the play stayed for rehearsal while
the others went to regular activities.
After swim, and an excellent lunch
of B. L. T. sandwiches and the usual
rest period, the main event of the after-
noon was the soccer game on the Land
Snorts field where the Crecraft Creeps
edged out the Sly McKoys in a 1-0
game. During the day several people
made their respective qualifications in
archery and riflery. A water polo
game dominated the swim period in
which the Bishops battled the Hills for
a draw score.
After dinner the activities were an
Orange-Black baseball game and an
Orange-Black football game in which
the Orange squeezed out a close vic-
tory. A swim in a choppy lake ended
the activities and with evening prayers
the camp turned in for a much sought
after night's sleep.
Thursday, August 9, 1962 —
We were greeted this morning by
gray skies and a strong wind out of
the northeast. To start olT the day we
soon learned that the diving raft broke
its mooring and drifted into shore
along with the orange duck. During
duties we were all quite busy placing
the raft back in its place plus putting
three new moorings out for the Sun-
rays. As we progressed into activities
the skies began to clear up but the
wind was still strong. During activi-
ties Dick, Mr. Grover, Don, Downie
and myself stepped the mast on the
blue Sunray. It would have been hard
work if Art Grover, who made these
beautiful boats hadn't been there.
Finally that long awaited moment came
when we put her in the water. Dick
and Art were the first to sail the Sun-
ray and as they left the dock Nancy
Kennedy named it the Grover.
There were other accomplishments
also. Jack Kistler spent most of the
day working on the big Kieve sign
which hangs at the entrance of camp.
Down at the rifle range Bucky King
shot a score of 49, the highest this
year. Also Gram Yearley earned his
sharpshooter. At archery Jack Ma-
chen received his blue arrow and Phil
Franke shot for his black arrow.
To make the day complete we had
a baseball game with Chimney Point.
We played a perfect game until the
last inning when we lost our lead. I
know if darkness hadn't come so soon
we would have easily won. But as it
was the game ended up in a tie. Not
everybody went to the game because
we had a movie here at camp. The
title of the film was 'The Fastest Gun
Alive," a thrilling western. After this
to bed we went.
Friday, August 10, 1962 —
A dry northeaster awaited the camp-
ers as they were rudely awakened at
7:30. Their duties were performed as
usual. At Indian circle most of the
boys were in play rehearsal. Those re-
maining had their choice of activities.
The results from the rifle range were:
Tom McKoy earned his Sharpshooter,
John Clark and Bucky King their
Bar I, and Beany LeFevre won his
A rain that was to continue through-
out the afternoon started to fall during
lunch. This forced the afternoon's ac-
tivities indoors. A movie on railroad-
ing was shown, and then the boys
worked on their "K's." It proved
Innisfree was the scene of another
fine movie, ''Drums Along the Mo-
hawk." After the settlers had settled
the Indians the O. D. settled the camp-
ers and declared camp secure at 8:40.
Saturday, August 11 — Dick Koelle
After a succession of gloomy days,
several councillors tried brainwashing
to insure fair weather. It worked for
awhile; Bob Bishop, who was finally
accepted at Penn after four years at
Princeton, was stripped to the waist
on the courts.
Morning activities saw Tom Supplee
(Bar V), Will Stettinius, Pete Wallace,
and Duncan Ely score at Riflery, and
Reed Shingle, Doug Reddy, Geoff
Nuckols, and Wayne Colpit at Arch-
ery. On the new field, Ned McKoy's
Noodles defeated Cabot's Cowards by
the basketball score of 120-108. Mc-
Koy, Levering, and Richardson led the
stampede of the Noodles. At lunch,
we were honored by the company of
Harry Cabot's father.
The afternoon was featured by the
thirteen-year-old baseball game with
Chimney Point. John van Roden's
fine pitching, the hitting of Freddy
Levering (two hits and two RBI's),
Jeff Slack, and Ned Hetherington, and
a 4-2 lead were wasted by a late
comedy of errors in a 6-4 Kieve loss.
Evening activities (free time, tennis
tournament, games, etc.) lacked the
presence of North Glenayr, wlio were
being partied by Dick and Nancy.
And finally, like little angels, to bed.
Sunday, August 12, 1962 — -
Another gloomy dawn with inter-
mittent drizzle greeted a sleepy camp
at reveille. The hopes of the Catholics
were shattered as J. F. K. did not at-
tend their Mass. Duties, a superb in-
spection won jointly by the Bunker
Hills, and choir practice preceded an
inspiring chapel service in Innisfree.
Mr. Hudson, assistant director of
Camp Chewonki, spoke with sincere
eloquence about the importance of us-
ing one's hidden talents to the best ad-
vantage. He used his knowledge of
nature to illustrate several points which
made his talk particularly interesting.
We were joined at lunch by Ray
Fitch, a prospective Kieve boy, and
Mr. and Mrs. Hudson. The dining
room was virtually hushed from 12:30
until 1:30 as we all dug into the tur-
key dinner with a will.
At long last the sun broke through
in the afternoon. The activities in-
cluded tennis matchfes, lifesaving,
sailing, a play rehearsal, and a rough
and tumble touch football game in
which Bill Hudson, Mac Keyser, Harry
Cabot, Ned McKoy, Jack Machen, and
Peter Gamage starred.
Despite a rousing effort by John
McCord, Dick Koelle, Willie Stokes,
and Mike "The Runner" Westcott, the
strong Black Council football team
rolled up a rather easy, series-clinching
After a rapid dip, prayers, the
Kieve song and a cheer, all was quiet
on the hill. .
Monday, August 13, 1962 —
Another cloudy day greeted each
bright, and grimy face, so the trip to
Pemaquid Beach was again postponed.
Duties saw the field and volleyball
court lined, some brush cut, and some
general housekeeping take place. Ac-
tivities were chosen, engaged in, and
the play was rehearsed. Lunch w^s
good and warm, and all rested quite
eagerly at rest hour. Afternoon ac-
tivities saw the radio shack, archery
field, rifle range, and football field
filled and active. That evening after
a wonderful ham and cabbage dinner,
t4ie Bunker Hills played each other to
a scoreless tie in soccer, while North
Harris trounced North Glenayr in vol-
leyball. South Glenayr partook at
Dick's house until taps when all calmed
Tuesday, August 14, 1962 —
No sun shone on Tuesday; instead,
the day was cloudy and gray. But
such weather was typical of the last
week and so the day's program on long
activity periods and short swims
seemed perfectly natural. Of note,
yet not out of keeping with the en-
vironment, was the arrival of the in-
famous South Harris Wilderness
group. The day ended with games,
taps, a dip, and bed.
Wednesday, August 15, 1962 —
Finally the weather broke and a
bright, sunny, warm day greeted the
camp for a day full of activity. After
the customary period of duties and
some time allotted for the last laundry
chaos the day's activities began. Most
people went to activities such as arch-
ery, riflery and life-saving to complete
the necessary tasks for qualification.
During the morning pictures were also
taken of some of the activities and of
the second generation campers.
After an excellent lunch and a rest
period which was filled mostly with
play practice the afternoon activities
began with the same activities except
for a football game between the Cre-
craft Mongrels and the Machen
Smashers — the latter who managed
to win a close and exciting game.
The evening activity was French and
Indians and camp settled down for the
night after prayers and the Kieve song.
Thursday, August 16, 1962 —
We were up at 8:00 this morning
under clear skies. Since this was the
last week of camp most of the boys
spent the morning finishing up qualifi-
cations for their "K's." Down at the
archery range Tom Reynolds shot for
his Sharpshooter, Willie Stettinius re-
ceived his Marksman First Class,
Bucky King received his Bar II, and
Harry Cabot his Bar I. John Smith
and John Perkins finished the nature
display and Hill Ferguson gave the
final exam for life saving down at the
During the afternoon we had a re-
gatta during which time I turned over
the blue Sunray. After supper Ted
Whitney had play practice. We were
in bed by 9:00 o'clock, but the day
did not end because there were ice
cream parties in each of the bunk
Friday, August 17, 1962 —
A very foggy morning greeted us as
the campers opened their bleary eyes.
All had hopes that it would burn off,
but were later disappointed by a thun-
Inspection was held and after severe
threats by "Two-Ton" Dunn the bunk-
houses looked presentable. Activities
during the day were well attended
with sailing and lifesaving taking the
majority of the campers. Afternoon
swim was interrupted by our storm.
The Point Supper was rained out,
but it did clear in time for a bonfire,
marshmallows, the traditional song of
farewell, Dick's rendition on tradition,
and the opportunity to all meet as one
for the last time this summer.
After the campfire the walk back
was rather scary as the moon hadn't
peeked through yet, but all returned
safely, we think, and all hit the sack
Saturday, August 18, 1962 —
The weather that dawned this morn-
ing convinced old Kieveites that the
Watersports Weekend weather charm
was still in effect. Excitement was
high all morning, as campers packed
and waited for their parents. After
swim, canoe tilt eliminations saw the
teams of Pack-King and K. Moller-
Perry come out victorious.
During rest, all waited anxiously as
families slowly started to filter in.
Stephen Michael's father, the last in a
string of pitchers for the old men,
caught a line drive in self-defense to
salvage a 9-9 tie in the annual Father-
Son Softball game. Swim and free time
allowed the families to take advantage
of the facilities, especially the Water-
The highlight of the evening was a
play entitled, "Parents Think the
Damdest Things." This musical
comedy was written by Nancy Ken-
nedy and directed by Ted Whitney.
John van Roden, Ned Hetherington,
and Jeflf Slack, in the lead roles, and
the entire cast were wonderful.
It was late when we all went to bed
together for the last time.
Sunday, August 19, 1962
A most beautiful day greeted camper
and parent alike as the last day be-
gan. The usual morning duties and
tub preceded car packing and the
Chapel service. John Smith summed
up his year of preaching, dwelling on
family ties, and how all the attributes
of a Christian Gentleman should be
emulated by each cf us.
Turkey salad and the trimmings
followed, and after a brief rest hour,
all assembled at the lake for the water-
sports events. The results appear at
The lobster-corn feed was absolute-
ly wonderful and enjoyed by all, after
which all retired to Innisfree for the
awards. Each boy was rewarded for
his endeavor, and the parents and
children silently, or not so silently
stole away for the year. Good luck to
all, and See you Next Year!

The lake is alone in the moonlight.
The trees are alone on the hiU;
The cabins are quiet and empty,
No voices or laughter to trill.
The hush of September is on us,
The school bell has rung in each town;
The leaves golden yellow are turning.
The grass on the hillside is brown.
The birds from the telephone wires
To the southward have wended their way,
The squirrel, the rabbit and woodchuck
Will soon settle down for their stay.
Soon snows of December will blanket
This Boyland of frolic and fun;
The brief camping season is over.
The ribbons and medals are won.
But June will bring back all the noise.
The study, the work and the play.
Aunt Harriet, Dick and the boys
Will welcome a new Kieve day.
